Camping doesn’t mean you have to eat cold beans out of a can, or purchase ready-made freeze-dried meals that you attempt to make edible by adding water. Yuck! In the military, they call those MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat), and while they may be ready, they’re not too great.
If you can build an open fire, you can cook great tasting, easy meals. Besides, nothing beats the flavor of food with that fantastic smoky flavor.
Below is a great dessert that couldn’t be simpler. In fact, it’s one of my favorites that’s not too terribly messy either.
S’more Stuffed Bananas
- 1 Banana
- Handful of Chocolate Chips
- Handful of Marshmallows
- 1 Graham Cracker
- Optional: Peanut Butter, Nuts, or Nutella
- 1. Heat a grill to about 350 degrees.
- 2. Using a knife, cut out a small strip of peel from the top of your banana, leaving one end intact. Pull back the strip, and use a knife or spoon to carve a shallow "canyon" down the center of your banana. Eat the piece of banana you carve out.
- 3. Fill the canyon with chocolate chips and marshmallows and other mix ins if desired. Stuff it as full as you can! You can also smear some peanut butter or Biscoff spread on before you start.
- 4. Place the peel back into place then wrap a square of foil tightly around the banana.
- 5. Set foil packets directly on the grill, cover, and cook for 10-12 minutes or until marshmallows and chocolate are melted.
- 6. Remove from the grill and carefully pull away foil. Pull back the peel and dig in!
